|Messi and Antonella.|
The long-time partner of the diminutive argentine is pregnant. Some good nine months from now the "lil god" would not only be celebrating a personal award/awards but will also be titled 'daddy". The left-footed attacker had always been tight-lipped when questioned about the reports that he was expecting his first child with his partner, Antonella Roccuzzo but I guess the news of being a father is one that Great men will always be proud of. Messi is definitely not an exception. He wil now be on equal terms with his fiercest competitor, Cristiano Ronaldo who turned a father some 2 years ago after witnessing his "goal-scoring" exploits yield dividends in the US--TO A WOMAN STILL UNKNOWN.
"I think it will be a boy," Messi is quoted as saying by Ole. "We did not want to say anything because we never talk about our private life. But we were constantly asked about it, so we wanted to share our joy." Great Joy indeed.
The three-time Ballon d'Or winner, who broke into Barca's first team in 2004, scored 73 goals in all competitions in 2011-12.
What a glorious father's day it has been! Ronaldo bags a brace and celebrates his son at 2, Messi announces that he'd soon be a dad. These two never give up at trying to beat each other, do they?
